Decided to do something different this time in Las Vegas and stay at the Courtyard Convention Center. It was a very nice surprise! We were upgraded to a King Suite and on check in you get to draw from a deck of cards for a "prize" .... I drew 200 free Marriott points which were immediately posted to my account. The hotel is a little older but still quite nice....directly across from the convention center, half block from the monorail station and just down the road from the Wynn/Encore. The staff was very nice and the food was very good. This is a very good place to stay if you want to stay somewhere quiet and then go "out" to play.....a system I've really become a fan of.
